Not drinking, but...

I thought I never self harm when I’m sober, but I couldn’t cope today and I did hurt myself pretty badly. It’s painful and I can feel my blood dripping... There’s nothing to worry about - not much chance of dying by cutting. It just makes me feel like an attention seeking teenager...

I can’t really explain why am I doing this. Do I want to feel bad?

I wish I wasn’t so alone.

Please don't hurt yourself anymore.

And there's self injury resources.

Snuf I'm not a cutter but someone once explained it to me as being very similar to drinking - it can be a means of escape, or releasing pressure.

I think there are better more life affirming ways to do that than cutting?

Snufkin you are not alone. There are people here that really care about you. I am sorry that you were in so much pain that you cut yourself. Maybe it is time to address that. I am glad that you are not drinking.

Perhaps it would be useful to you to explain it (to whatever extent you're comfortable) to those of us who do not understand what it's like to do this?

((Snufkin)) You're not alone here. You became part of our SR family the moment you joined. I'm sorry you're in so much pain. It's my understanding, and I'm far from an expert, you cut to either escape your pain or you're having difficulty coping.

Was there something that triggered you today?

Sending you a big hug.

Hey....

You know, you donít need to hurt yourself.....

Youíre worthy of love and support and help....

Youíre worthy of being seen, and the pain youíre trying to Ďtreatí by abusing yourself.... you donít have to face it alone.

What support beyond this forum might you turn to? Have you got a therapist?

Thereís a little person inside you..... close your eyes.... picture that little you... embrace that you....

This life can be beautiful... you and that little person inside can walk hand in hand and feel joy.

You can.

Thank you all. Some of my cuts are pretty deep and I’m not sure what to do - Samaritans or 111 don’t answer. Do you think I could just... bandage my wounds? I feel terrible. I don’t want my BF to ever find about this...

If they're deep, please get medical help. A doctor or emergency service.

Snuf, if the wounds are deep, you should seek medical attention. The wound should probably be cleaned to avoid infection and may need suturing.

You are not alone; we are here for you.

Hey Snuf - if they won't stop bleeding or you think they might require stitches, then you know what to do.

Take care, ok?

HI Snuf........I'm just now catching up. What is going on that you felt the need to cut yourself? I'm sorry you were in such turmoil. I hope you saw a doctor regarding your wounds. We care Snuf and you are not alone. (((HUGS))))

Snuf x. Have you had the injury looked at yet? It's really important that you do so please have someone examine it to make sure that you're OK. I wouldn't worry too much about what your bf thinks at the moment - it's your business plus if he's worth having he'll be supportive should you do decide to confide at some point. Can you please let us know how you are - we're all here for you. Hugs x
